Mt. Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir Team Had a Successful Week of Training

RMI Guides Hannah Smith and Steve Gately and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir Team spent a fun week on Mt. Rainier learning new mountaineering skills such as snow & ice anchors, crevasse rescue, ice climbing, fixed line travel, belaying and other technical skills needed to tackle the world's greatest peaks. The team spend their time training on the Cowlitz and Ingraham glaciers that surround Camp Muir and made it to Ingraham Flats at 11,200' to enjoy the incredible views of other peaks in the Cascade Range. 

Congratulations Team!

Mt. Rainier: Four Day Climb Unable to Summit, Reach 12,300’

The Four Day Climb August 28 - 31 led by RMI Guides Avery Parrinello and Jack Delaney were unable to summit today.  Climbers reached 12,300, the top of Disappointment Cleaver, before deciding to turn back due to unfavorable route conditions and warm temperatures.  The teams were back to Camp Muir just after 7 am.  They took some time to repack before beginning their descent from Camp Muir back to Paradise. We expect the groups to be at Rainier BaseCamp in the early afternoon.

My son Lucas was roped up with each of the guides at some point during the climb and had nothing but praise for all of them.  My wife and I want to thank Mira, George, Casey, and Dustin for leading a safe, informative, and successful climb!  Cheers to all of you!
